Earlier today, the 51st Legislature began with the new members being sworn in and Governor Brewer delivering her State of the State address. It is clear that education will be a focus of the conversation during this legislative session, with implementing the Common Core standards as a top priority.
This week, the House and Senate Education Committees will begin meeting. As we have in the past, Stand for Children will be sending out regular updates on what is happening at the Capitol. Be on the lookout for information about education bills and what the state budget will entail.
